Welcome to the website for the Plotkin Research Group!

We do research at the interface of physics and biology.

Our interests range from the study of dynamics and disorder in the theory of protein folding, misfolding, and aggregation, to DNA function and dynamics, to studies of pattern formation and symmetry breaking in morphogenesis.
